As San Francisco solidifies its status as the tech capital of the United States, the city is often accused of losing its soul. The winding streets are covered in electric scooters, and there seems to be a green smoothie joint or upscale coffee store on every corner. However, the heart of what made San Francisco special still lives on its incredible array of cuisines. If you know where to look, you can fulfill almost any craving.
When I’m feeling bummed out by omnipresent fog or just need a bit of warmth, I head to one of my favorite noodle spots in the city. Skip the fast-casual chains and try these gems to get your noodle fix instead — whether you’re in the mood for filling Japanese ramen or a light tofu noodle, San Francisco has it all.
